    If you enjoyed "Parasite Eve," be prepared for something different -- better in gameplay, but maybe not as classy in story.
  2. Spank!
    90
    A cracking title, that's so finely tuned and crafted as well as addictive and compelling.

    Leave it to Square to find a way to combine survival-horror and RPG elements into a gripping adventure. [Nov 2001, p.50]

    Fans of the original game who lamented its poor battle system may now drop their pants and do the hootchie-koo in celebration.
  5. The combat aspect could stand another tweak or two, but the intriguing story -- a blend of creepiness and conspiracy--keeps these discs in the console until the final credits run.
  6. CNET Gamecenter
    80
    A weird combination of action, puzzle solving, and strategy that is freakishly fun.
  7. If you've gotten tired of the same old formula, or you're a big fan of the more RPG-like combat system of the original game, you may want to pass on PE II.
  8. 80
    A challenging game that tells a good story (if you get the best ending that is). Lots of replay value and let's not forget huge full screen bosses.
  9. With an engaging story to complement the gameplay, it is only the game's problematic control and disjointed pace that keep it from scoring higher.
  10. A good sequel that would have been great if the story had more substance.

    Much more then an Resident Evil clone, Parasite Eve is an orginal and, at times, stunning mix of survival horror & RPG. In fact it's Much more then an Resident Evil clone, Parasite Eve is an orginal and, at times, stunning mix of survival horror & RPG. In fact it's superior to Resi in many ways and goes down as one of the Playstations most under rated games. Buy it you fools! Full Review »
